50% new French oak. Fruit was pressed to tank to settle overnight. Then it was racked to the barrels where fermentation and malolactic took place. The barrels were stirred weekly for two months to mix the lees. After 10 months in barrels the wine was racked off of the lees and blended for bottling.
